Akinbiyi stated that the accident was caused by speeding and wrongful overtaking on the part of the bus.

He said that seven of the passengers in the bus with registration number BEN-313 YX died on the spot while the 8th person died at the hospital.

“10 persons were involved in the accident – five male and five female. Five male and two female died on the spot while one female died at the hospital.
